Christmas pudding is a dessert served on Christmas in the UK, it’s a a steamed/boiled fruit cake with spices. Similar to a rich fruit cake which is boiled. I’m not the biggest fan of rich fruit cakes, but the Hubster is a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas. The great thing about Christmas puddings and Christmas cakes is that they keep well.
